General Settings

  1. Site name: This is important for SEO. To be geeky about it, creates the text for the H1 tag. You can use your name, your company name, or a keyword that is important to you. Please only use one important keyword or search term...don't overdo it.
  2. Browser title: This is what will be seen at the top of the browser. Leave the {PAGE_NAME} as is and add a “-” and the title of the site. (i.e.: {PAGE_NAME}- Intothedarkroom) The {PAGE_NAME} will be replaced with the page name that they are on.
  3. Meta Tag Description: Write a 250 character paragraph describing what this site is for. Do not add a bunch of spam words. Write it as if your clients are going to read it.
  4. Meta Tag Keywords: Comma separate your keywords (i.e.: Carlsbad photographer, Jay Reilly, etc)
  5. Footer Link Text: choose from the dropdown how you want the link to read.
  6. Site Footer text: Add your copyright information here. (i.e.: © 2010 ITDR | intothedarkroom | all rights reserved)
  7. Google Analytics User Agent: When you set up your Google Analytics account, they give you a UA code. Just put this code in this field. It looks like this: UA-XXXXXXX-X.
  8. Use Server Side resampling: if you select “True”, this will reduce the file size (by percentage) of your images making them easier on the user’s bandwidth. However, we do suggest that when you are in Photoshop, you adjust the quality of your images to make them the optimum size for reduced bandwidth.
  9. Resampling Quality: Turn the percentage of the server side re-sampling up or down to increase or reduce the size of the files.
  10. Show Share in Navigation:  Turn this to "True" if you want a "share" button for social networking sites in your nav.  This will not turn on if your social bar is activated. 
  11. Mute Music on Splash Page: If you set up a splash page, you may not want music playing until someone enters the site.  If this is the case, select "True".
  12. Use Image Magick Library if available: (Not all servers have this.) Select “True” if you are using the server side re-sampling feature. This could process your images faster at higher resolutions.
  13. Automatically Sharpen re-sample Images: Selecting True will sharpen the images as they are scaled down in the server-side re-sampling process. This will keep your images from looking soft.
  14. Click "Save"

 

 

 Watermarking

  1. Use Watermarking Image: If you select “True” this will turn watermarking on. If you select “False” watermarking will be turned off.
  2. Watermarking Image: Upload an image you would like to use for your watermark. We recommend a one color logo saved as a transparent PNG.
  3. Watermark X Offset: This helps you determine the horizontal position of the watermark. 0 will move the mark left, 100 will move the mark right.
  4. Watermark Y Offset: This helps you determine the vertical position of the watermark. 0 will move the mark up, 100 will move the mark down.
  5. Watermark Opacity: You can control the opacity of the watermark with the numerical number.
  6. Draw Crosshairs: if you select “True”, a one pixel “X” will be drawn over the image serving as a protective watermark.
  7. Crosshairs Color: The color of the watermark lines can be determined by the color picker.
  8. Crosshairs Opacity: You can control the opacity of the watermark with the numerical number.
  9. Click "Save"

 

 

Web services (Social Networking)

  1. The Facebook is the thumbnail that appears on people’s wall when they share your website.  This image will not appear automatically.  It takes Facebook a while before it can read the image.

  7. Use TweetMe Button: Select "True" if you want this to appear on your Social Bar. 
  8. Your Twitter Username:  If your Twitter URL is "twitter.com/intothedarkroom", you would just type in "intothedarkroom".  This will pull your last tweet onto the social bar. 
  9. Use Google +1 Button: Select "True" if you want this to appear on your Social Bar. 
  10. Recent Post RSS Feed URL:  Most blogs have an RSS icon on the blog.  If you click on that icon it will show you the RSS feed.  Copy and paste that feed in this field and your recent blog posts will be available on your social bar.  (i.e.: http://carveculture.com/?feed=rss2)
  11. Click "Save"
